Keith Urban has co-written and recorded a song for the upcoming Navy SEAL action-thriller Act of Valor. “For You,” co-written by Keith and Monty Powell, is the first time Keith has written and recorded a song specifically for a motion picture. The track will be featured during the film’s ending credits.
“I loved the challenge of writing for a film,” Keith said. “I’ve never done that before. After seeing Act Of Valor, my co-writer and I wanted to capture the essence of not only what these men and women do so extraordinarily, but how that relates to all of us. ’Valor’ shows us what they are willing to give their all for, which made me wonder, ‘what am I willing to give my life for?’ ‘For You’ is intended to allow the listener to define who that is for them.”
Act of Valor hits theaters February 24 and stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs along with Roselyn Sanchez, Alex Veadov, Jason Cottle and Nestor Serrano. The film takes audiences into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained force in the modern world as the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S. Inspired by true events, the film combines combat sequences, battlefield technology and heart-pounding emotion.
The Act of Valor soundtrack will be released February 21. In addition to Keith’s “For You,” the album will also feature original songs inspired by the film from several country artists, who will be announced at a later date.
